Rustic, short staff in off-season, food was okay, fried seafood, nothing special-better restaurants on Business 17 in Murrells Inlet.

This another of my favorite places to go when I'am in Surfside. The food is always good and I love being able to throw the peanut shells on the floor. Not a place to go if you have any peanut allergies.

Not only a great view, but great food. Best burgers in town. The service was excellent. This is a must stop for any trip to Surfside Beach.

The views are outstanding. The peanuts are overflowing. The burgers — mushroom, Swiss is our burger of choice — are amaze-balls. Pair it with fries or outrageously huge onion rings and a Heineken or sweet tea. You can’t beat the view, prices and quality. The...More
